Hey I just got a new amp, it's a Marshall MG series 100 DFX and I need help getting a good setting for it, there's too many buttons and knobs for my own good. I need a good setting for a pop punk sound, so light-medium distortion. Thanks in advance

You should only have tre, mid, bass gain and volume with a contour knob aka classic rock modern rock aka mid scoop knob lol on any given channel so it shouldnt be to hard for ya...

Hit up the ulitmate settings thread and snag some from there and tweak to taste...

ok i got an mg. its not bad at all.. people always bash as they tend to be band wagon jumpers etc. ppl need to realize for some ppl solid state is the best option in terms of price and what they use it for. anyway in my case i use my own effects as the best way to use the mg i feel is to run effects through the clean channel and just use the amp to amplify your effects. i have a zoom g2.1u and the effects coupled with amp modeling do a pretty good job and its really flexible. try that out.. i get pretty rad tones

People don't bash it because it's solid-state, we bash it because it sounds like shit. The MG is a practice amp, and is passable when used for practice, true - but it's an overpriced one. Not to mention there is no good-goddamn reason at all for there to be a 100 watt version.

Anyway, pop-punk needs lots of treble and distortion. That crowd isn't really too huge on effects, either.

I'd go with...

Gain: 7
Treb: 8
Mid: 5
Bass: 6

Wow, like I totally didn't expect that.

My suggestion would be to return it, but if you seriously like the amp, Flying Couch's recommendation sounds good.

Ahh sarcasm!

Flying Couch's suggestion is a good start for a pop punk tone, but maybe lower the gain a slight bit to something you prefer aurally.
